Keep at least 1.5 meters of distance between yourself and other people outside of classes or exams. To reduce contact, some main walkway routes in the university buildings are marked out as a one-way system, please comply with this.
To protect against infection, please observe the general hygiene rules. These include, for example:
- Be sure to maintain proper hand hygiene.
- Please observe cough and sneeze etiquette (for example, cough and sneeze into the crook of your elbow).
- Reduce personal contact at the university to that which is necessary; use telecommunication opportunities where possible.
- Work equipment or items (such as pens, measuring devices, etc.) should be used only by one individual or cleaned by the user before being given to another person or returned to the equipment pool. Students may request disinfectant at the front desk, along with standard household cleaners that they can use themselves to clean shared workstations or contact surfaces in the pool rooms prior to use.
The wearing of surgical masks or masks with a higher protection level (FFP2, KN95, etc.) is mandatory in all university buildings. This also applies during classes, regardless of whether a minimum distance is being maintained.
Please note: The mask requirement also applies to teachers and lecturers.
The mask requirement only does not apply:
- When you are alone in a room.
- At your workplace in offices and other workrooms for all fully vaccinated, recovered staff members, if there are no more than 2 people in the room. (group of 2G people).
Rooms must be thoroughly aired out as follows:
- Before and after use: complete airing out using the entire opening areas of the windows; recommended airing time: 10 minutes..
- During use, it is recommended to completely air out the room using the entire opening areas of the windows at certain intervals.
- In the winter for a period of 3 minutes
- In the spring/fall for 5 minutes
- In the summer for approximately 10 minutes
- The time between airing activities depends on the number of people, room size and intensity of the work. One indication of the air quality is the CO2 concentration in the rooms. Measuring devices (AirControl 5000) are available or in place for use in the seminar rooms and lecture halls for this purpose.
To enable rapid contact tracing in the event of a Covid 19 infection at the university, all students who are physically at the university must be registered.
- Contact registration of students is done by the students themselves, by scanning a QR code with the UniNow app when entering the respective classrooms.
- Alternatively, contact registration can be done using paper lists. This requires noting the following information: last name, first name, location in the building, time when entering and time when leaving the facility. Lists for registration are available at the reception desk of the individual locations and in the seminar rooms. Lists from the seminar rooms are taken by instructors to a location designated by each school after class.
- In addition to contact registration by the university, we recommend that all employees and students install the German government's Corona-WarnApp.
